  1. 512 MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ 7950 GT Good for Gaming? I'm looking to buy one. I want it to be able to handle games like WoW, or CS:S.

    Thanks.
  2. A 7950GT will run any game smoothly on high resolutions with very high graphic settings.

    It will play both those games on the highest possible resolution with setting pretty much maxed. Although, 2 7900GTX's is still more powerful.

    Yeah. but I really probablly can't afford. If the 512 MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ 7950 GT will run WoW And CS:S... It will be fine. I just need it to run Relativley lag-free.

    Well, here's what I'm looking at right now:

    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6400 2.13GHz 2MB Cache 1066MHz FSB

    Alienware® Approved NVIDIA nForce 4 SLI Motherboard

    1GB DDR2 Performance SDRAM at 800MHz - 2 x 512MB

    512 MB NVIDIA® GeForce™ 7950 GT


    Will those guys be able to Run WoW Really smooth? I really want to (for once) play WoW relativley lag-free.

    Just wondering, whats your power supply wattage and if you know, the amp rating on the 12v. rail? The 7950GT is a relatively power hungry card.

    EDIT:
    Are you looking at an Alienware??? If you are, disregard above.

    True, all you need is a GeForce 6600, or something to that extent (a 6200 overclocked to a 6600 as well).

    Wow (no pun intended)! I thought World of Warcraft was more demanding than that. Just shows how much I've played!

    EDIT:
    You could also just get an ATI Radeon X800/X850 (just suggested to me actually as well). These should run most games on at least medium settings, if not high (Oblivion).

    Runs a lot better than my Celeron! I personally like it. I just need a new video cards and ram, and I'm finally all set...for now anyway. Very fast...very fast. Thank you for asking.
